Learn Something Series

The Learn Something Series, launched during the coronavirus pandemic, offers you curated content on specific relevant topics to learn at your own pace. The subjects chosen — resiliencetrust, and communication — are relevant to adjusting to the “current norm” of the virtual workplace. 

During this unprecedented time when many aspects of our work and personal lives are altered, learning and professional development continue to offer us a reaffirming path for growth and wellness.

The Learn Something Series offers you the flexibility to continue to develop yourself as your work and life schedule allows. So wake up early, stay up late, or find a quiet (or not so quiet) place to read, watch, reflect, and try something new. Then, if you wish, connect with us to share what you learned, inspire others, and remain connected to Princeton’s vibrant community.

Building Resilience in Crisis

During this pandemic, we may be confronted by fear and lack of information. However, we all have the capability to build resilience through acknowledging our emotions, connecting with others, and finding ways to be self-compassionate. Resilience can be learned, and it can be our greatest strength in these uncertain times.

Building Trust Remotely

When we work remotely, building and maintaining trust becomes incredibly important, not impossible. By staying connected and communicating and sharing our humanity, we can build bonds and demonstrate our commitment, no matter the distance.

Building a Communication Culture When Working Remotely

Communication is a critical competency when leading and working in a remote environment. A strong communication culture includes good practices to help build and sustain remote teams. Setting up time for connection, collaboration, and celebration are among the practices that contribute to higher employee engagement and productivity.

The art of communication is the language of leadership.
